Maybe, but I would also caution that the same attitude towards xenophobia needs to be applied to how we treat Muslims. It is very apparent, from day-to-day life here in the UK, that Muslims are not required to treat others with respect.


Is it, really? I would say issues of respect are far more of an issue for the feckless 'yoof' that have no manners (and come from all manner of backgrounds). I can't say my interactions with Muslims are any less respectful than those with non-Muslims.


Well then you obviously aren't on the 'target' list for Muslims. I am. My dad is. My girlfriend is. I have been subject to direct abuse from plenty of Muslims so I'm sorry but your views are meaningless to me. I did not grow up hating Islam - in fact, as a child I used to like Religious Education class and got top marks consistently - nope, just as respect is earned so is hate. I respect I good many people in the world, but Islam has well and truly earned disgust.

I don't EXPECT you to believe anything - and many of the criticisms you make of Islam are entirely valid - I find homophobia a perversity in itself, in this day and age. However, it is misguided to believe that this is solely a Muslim problem or that they are the reason why it is still an issue in Britain or the West in this day and age.

The extreme of any minority acts in extreme ways - this is not restricted solely to Muslims, by any means.

It seems very lazy - and dangerous - for posters here to make at best baseless and at worst racist generalisations based purely on the religion one practises.


Where do I begin?
1. I never said anything about homophobia being a 'solely' Muslim problem. That is something that you read into it in your own mind.
2. I never said that other minorities didn't act in extreme ways. Again, something you made up in your own head.
3. Nothing I have said is 'baseless' - again read what I wrote.
4. Nothing I have said is 'lazy'.
5. How can this be 'racist'. A religion is NOT A RACE. You have Caucasian Muslims too, and Asian Muslims etc.

Your response is typical of those that serve only to stoke the anger. You avoid addressing any of the points, just like a politician. You have read things that weren't there. You have played the 'racism' card where 'racism' simply has nothing to do with it, and you have also used a personal attack (lazy) on people you don't agree with because you just can't rebut any of the arguments using intelligence.

You, my friend, are the lazy one.

The video is clearly biased, of course it'll be lots of muslims during a march and give the impression her hometown is "taken" by them, also I can understand the annoyance she caused during the arguments she engaged. But sure there are the extremists and for dealing with them I have a very simple suggestion: just give each one £10k, a couple goats or a camel and escort them wherever they choose in middle east or Africa, where their laws and culture are acceptable, they are bound to be much happier there.

I agree that eventually islam will dominate this world.
Islam's dominance will end when Yeshua/Jesus returns.

The only movment i'd join is if there was an atheist one that's against all religions,religion needs to go.Look how it makes weak minded people think and act,yes i said weak minded.Also if they don't like how the uk is run why don't they go back where they came from,bunch of rats.The uk needs to be more like australia when it comes to letting people in,i don't really care who comes to the uk but if you've got a problem with how we live then # off.

My comments were about this discussion, not just what you have said. Sorry that I can't give you my complete, undivided attention!

However, I will refer specifically to what you said here - that you think you are on a Muslim target list. Well, I don't shadow you in your daily life so I can't prove or disprove that - but what I do know is that if you aren't careful, you will develop a persecution complex.

religion - in the hands of rational people is fine, in the hands of irrational people it is quite simply dangerous. you can't let a book dictate your life, it just isn't relevant to anything. this seems to me as if it was made purely to make people angry at muslims (but then again this is the BBC filming muslims in luton home of the EDL no less) and i also noticed that the poster of the video was called burnislamburnallah (how unbiased). it is doing nothing more than making people angry at each other. and it's working. i just think that we won't truly be civilised as long as we continue to entertain religion, wars, capital punishment and use money etc etc. only when all that is gone will we truly be civilised.

I just watched the video......and it makes me SICK! ANGRY! and RESENTFUL!

Do not be fooled into thinking these are only a "small minority"

I'm from Birmingham, the "white" side, thank "God".

I'm not even lying when I tell you, just this once I had to travel across Birmingham to get to the TA office which is located in Alum Rock/Small Heath.

You ask any Brummy, you won't see no white folk over there! Its Pakistan town!

I was ONLY WHITE PERSON on the bus into Alum Rock from the town center (6 pm), the bus driver tried taking me alone to the bus garage!! He barely spoke any English anyway, lucky enough my "Get the fek out of here" radar went off so I got off the bus somewhere in Alum Rock, where I had to navigate to Golden Hillock Road...

I'd been off the bus for exactly 2 minutes when a 3 Muslim men approached me in a not so friendly manner, I had to get my phone out and pretend I was meeting a friend down the road.....so I avoided that one, I went to stand at the next nearest bus stop to ask directions where 2 more Muslim men approached me,

TO ASK ME IF I WAS WORKING "THE GAME"......I wouldn't mind but I was dressed in a tracksuit!!!


I had to get away from those quick time!! Then I only made it to the top of another road when a group of 4 Muslim men approached me, This time one touched me, so I told them to back off and literally ran as far as I could....It started getting dark, and I knew I couldn't stay in this area, even the walls WERE PAINTED WITH PAKISTANI FLAGS, ITS LIKE I WEREN'T IN ENGLAND!!

I COULDN'T FIND A WHITE PERSON ANYWHERE, I COULDN'T FIND A WOMAN ANYWHERE, HECK I COULDN'T EVEN FIND A POLICE CAR TO FLAG DOWN.

I come across Small Heath train station where I though I could find refuge, I got there and.....nope...just a few more dodgey Muslim men...I had to walk round the back and hide in a corner of the station until my cuson came to pick me up.

I missed my TA meeting, and never went back since. Even my chances of finding work are limited because the majority advertised are based in the "Wrong" side of Brum, now I don't scare easily, I've decked more men than I can count on one hand, BUT GOING DOWN THERE, TO THOSE PLACES...A BIG NO NO.

AND THIS IS ENGLAND??

The founder of Islam was a violent warlord who spread Islam by the sword.


In the space of a single decade

Muhammad

• Fought 8 major battles,
• Led 18 raids,
• Planned another 38 military operations where others were in command but operating under his orders and strategic direction.

HistoryNet:- "Muhammad: The Warrior Prophet"


Why is anyone suprised that some Muslims also spread Islam through violence or that moderate Muslims can become radicals so quickly?

The founder of Islam was a violent radical.


"I was ordered to fight all men until they say 'There is no god but Allah."

Prophet Muhammad's farewell address, March 632

Yale Press:- "Islamic Imperialism"

Sorry for you across the pond, it appears that Britain may become the new Mecca. Do not feel bad, parts of the USA are becoming Muslim controlled. It is all part of the master plan, Rejoice the time is near. Alll of you Christain bashing atheists will be crying to be saved when TSHTF. Fear not the solution is easy, accept Christ as your Lord and Savior and spare yourselves the misery.


Peace and Love

How tolerant are these mdoerate Muslims?


• 97% of British Muslims stated that Western newspapers were wrong to publish the depictions of Muhammad that appeared in the Danish Press.

• 85% of British Muslims were offended by the Danish cartoons of Muhammad.

• 14% (6% refused to answer & 3% don't know) agreed that the Danish embassies should have been attacked.

• 12% of British Muslims agree with Muslim demonstrators calling for the death of those who insult Islam (1% refused to answer and 5% don't know).

• 13% agree that violence against people who insult Islam according to their Iman is justified. 1% refused to answer and 7% don't know.

• 20% of respondents have sympathy with those who carried out the London Bombings. 1% refused to answer and 4% don't know.

ICM Research


It would appear that many British Muslims are not moderate at all.

You need to separate the Muslims, from the Islamic Extremists and the Sharia Law bunch. Muslims are not the problem, but I agree fully the small percentage who are a problem are likely the ones causing the issues.

I have quite a few Muslim acquaintances here and none of them are into the radical aspects of the Muslim Faith. They came here to get away from them in fact.



QFT.

So can I now go to Youtube and post a video of Fred Phelps and his lunatic fringe group and suggest that the radical Right-Wing Christians are taking over America, and that ALL Christians are homophobic, racist, hateful, violent retards?

Can I use one of their ten second soundbites to tarnish an entire group of people, and suggest that it is the same across an entire nation?

Can I use that to warn people that there will soon be Christian controlled concentration camps and religious courts where gay people are put to death, Muslims are enslaved and non-believers imprisoned?

No, I can't do that, because I am not a complete idiot who is trying to stir up racial and religious hatred based on insignificant events where the story is manipulated to exaggerate a point.

I know that there are, unfortunately, a lot of other idiots on these forums who fall for this BS and think that seeing one video means something more than it actually does. I pity them, because they don't live in the real world the rest of us inhabit. They'll read a BS headline in a trash mag and believe it, they'll listen to a neo-Nazi and think he has a point, they'll see a video like this and extend that belief to encompass millions of people...

Funny how the motto here is "deny ignorance" when so many seem all too willing to embrace it at every opportunity.

FYI, I'm totally not surprised that this forum is looked on with suspicion when it comes to extremist views (as some have suggested it is). Threads like this make it clear that there are some in our community who are propagators of intolerance and baseless propaganda.

Damn... this video in the OP is terrible... how we've let them fester here and be allowed to shout their rhetoric here is beyond belief....

I really hope Cameron has the balls to shut this lot up and send them off if they don't comply.... i can only see much trouble down the line if this continues....

I think that atheists like you should be eradicated because you don't even have the dignity to serve your on purpose. You think life is meaningless and not worth living for. Then why don't you go shoot yourself to see where you end up, and if you realize you're somewhere, call us with a phone and tell us the truth. But you're afraid of dying aren't you? Simply because you don't know what the truth is or how to look for it. Saying religion is a plague will never get you anywhere, but will get you to the other side, if you know what I mean.


You muzzie nutcases are all the same, responding with vitriol and anger whenever you encounter someone who doesn't agree with you.

This is ofcourse no surprise since your so-called prophet was a pedophile, war-mongering, bigoted slaver. This is according to your "holy scriptures" so don't even try to deny it.

Seriously?

You're bringing up ancient religious text and using that to explain the average Muslim of today?

Have you read the Bible?
Do you have any knowledge of Christian history?

Do you like to cherry-pick to back up your radical racial and religious intolerance?

Try this on for the benefits for Islam ..Radical Anti-Western:
Amercian solider serving in Afghanistan was ran over and subsquenctly died,, by an American Army convoy trying to save an AFghan child from being ran over. SEcurity reports the family was paid $300 USD to put their child out in harms way in an effort to stop convoys. You want this type of fanaticism to rule your country? Yes, rule your county...Iatollahs, Immahs...mullahs. I wanted to travel to England on my next break.. but thats because I want to get away from Islam..muslims and enjoy the freedoms of a western world..guess I need to visit another country...

Im from your neck of the woods..

Had not lived there for over twenty years due to military service.. When I came back I was disgusted that we had allowed our area to become haven for these god awful maniacs..

I am also in the TA now, so we may have crossed paths


The church I grew up in is now a fricken mosque! Every shop looks like it came directly out of Pakistan.. I took my missuses kids to cannon hill park last weekend.. The little fella was disappointed to find out that those ladies in burqas were NOT ninjas, after commenting and being excited that the park was full of ninjas!
(that was embarrassing and funny)...

We do need to put a stop to this if we are to retain our country..

Only those who live in leafy suburbs away from it all think not..

While I usually do not subscribe to or condone any type of hate towards a group of people - I strongly believe in live and let live as long as "NONE ARE HARMED".

That, to me is the main rule and all children should be loved, cherished and treated with respect.

The video is very scary.

While I believe in religious freedom (I am not religious, spiritual yes, religious NO) Again, on many levels this video and the Mosque going up all over in my little corner of the Midwest USA is scary.

If the Muslims are willing to live and let live - then I wish them well and welcome.

------------- HOWEVER ----------------

If they (or anyone) tries to shove their religion down my throat I do not wish them welcome with open arms.

I do not mean anyone harm, but my grand daughter, while I don't want her to wear tube tops and jeans cut up to her
also do not wish her to be forced to wear a Hijab, Burqa, Niqab or any of the other primitive slave garments the men have required of females.

I don't know.

I do not sincerely wish harm upon anyone.

Again that word, but - if someone, anyone, wants to restrict a person (my) God given right to freedom then I will resist.

So far, where we are, the Muslims I know that live on my street are nice and get along with everyone else. Some of the younger girls are even now wearing jeans and sneakers, no veil.

Why can't we all just get along?

Why can't everyone just live and let live and not try to force their beliefs down everyone?

Where I am at right here and now, the Muslim Community is small in number, so perhaps they being out numbered, are being careful not to offend anyone until their numbers grow and their numbers yes are growing.

Again, I don't know.

Tired of the Jehovah Witnesses coming to my front door, am polite and say, "no thank you, have a good day" and then shut the door on them - but I hope we here in America continue to keep our religious freedoms.

That too may change if we are not vigilant.

We have allowed, thus far, many of our other freedoms to be ripped out from right under us - is religious freedom the next freedom we all in the western world about ready to loose and not even see it coming?

I dress modestly, I'm an old lady so my jeans, a pretty tunic top and grippy sneakers are my choice for normal street wear.

American Women (I can only speak for American Women - have never lived anywhere else) are so very lucky that we do have a choice as to what we can wear, who we can date, to divorce and take to court an abusive spouse.

When any group becomes the majority, usually their customs and practices become the "standard".

The video was upsetting because, if Muslims, when they reach that critical number of "many" do become more openly forceful, there will be again more hatred, more violence and more bloodshed.

Gosh, why can't everyone just live and let live?

Why can't everyone just do your own thing and leave everyone else do their own thing?
